LifeNexus to Demonstrate at the 8th Annual Health 2.0 Conference How iChip® Improves the Consumer's Healthcare Experience

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - September 19, 2014) -  LifeNexus, creator of iChip®, announced today that it has been selected to demonstrate at the 8th annual Health 2.0 Fall Conference in Santa Clara, California.

"LifeNexus and its iChip solution were chosen because they brought new technology to the experience of capturing and providing our personal health information," said Hannah Rapp, associate producer for Health 2.0. "The novelty of the idea, plus proof of project success definitely caught our eyes as producers. As we increasingly see consumers demand access to their personal health data iChip was a perfect fit in the story we are telling in the conference."

iChip is a health plan-sponsored solution that delivers personalized health information that can be augmented and shared by the consumer and easily accessed and used by their doctor when the consumer and their dependents need care. In sharing this patient-specific information among all three stakeholders, iChip effectively opens the communication channels between consumers, their doctors and their health plans to improve the healthcare experience as well as health outcomes and financial results.

"We're very excited to demonstrate our iChip solution at Health 2.0," said Ian Worden, chief information officer and product architect for LifeNexus. "Having witnessed first-hand the importance of bringing your health information with you wherever you go, our goal was to create a solution that put the consumer in touch with their health information in a way that was easy and convenient. By providing individuals with access to their data and making it easy for them to share it with their doctors, iChip increases the consumer's engagement in their health, informs the doctor's diagnosis and treatment and positively impacts the overall healthcare experience." 

As a cloud-based, mobile platform, iChip leverages a consumer's health plan data to automatically update and populate an iChip Health Record that the member can access and update from a web-based portal and share with their doctors through an iChip-enabled benefits card or smartphone companion app. The iChip Health Record provides benefits and eligibility information, medical history, medications, recent health visits as well as allergies and advance directives, and points doctors to gaps in care that need to be addressed by the consumer. When a consumer arrives with iChip, their vital health information arrives with them.
